1 VELIKOVSKY, IMMANUEL. Oedipus And Akhnaton: Myth And History.
Doubleday & Co., Inc., Garden City: 1960. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition but dustjacket is worn and has some tears. 
Was Oedipus, the parricide who sired children by his mother, a product of the subconscious mind as Freud thought? Was he a mythological figure? Or was he a real, historical person? Such questions have provoked interest among historians and authors for centuries. In Oedipus and Akhnaton, Immanuel Velikovsky identifies the scene and all the personages of the Greek Oedipus legend with the life paterns of the family of the Egyptian King Aknhnaton, reputedly the first monotheist during the most famous period of Egyptian history. "The fascination of Egyptian history and the compelling tragedy of Oedipus are broufht together in inimitable fashion , , , a clever detective story full of suspense . . . excellent reading . . . dramatically written and beautifully illustrated. . ." - Gertrude Smith, Chairman, Classics Dept., University of Chicago, Chicago Tribune
